You just don't see them like this any more!!!  An Original Survivor!! This bike is CLEAN!!!!

In today’s world of massive, 1,800cc cruisers and 150-plus horsepower sportbikes, it’s easy to forget that middleweights once ruled the road. While there were plenty of big bikes around in the late Seventies, the middle ground of 400cc to 650cc machines was a hotly contested category. This one is a 500cc. 

The CX500 built a loyal following of owners, many using the V-Twin as a long-haul touring machine or daily commuter. This one is not perfect, but it runs, and rides just as it should. We have serviced it, and we also know that the charging system works correctly.  Check out the stock "Comstar" wheels, they still have the factory stickers on them. We have also installed a new front tire on it, It has a matching set of Dunlops on it. The rear looks new, the front is new!!  Looking at this bike is like opening a time capsule!!! original seat, in great condition, original pipes, not rusted out, or have not been cut up, and it still has the stock air box!!! The paint is also original, It still has the factory warring label on it!! You just don't see them like this any more. It has only been ridden 520 miles a year, for a total of 20,777. 

If you do a quick Google search for CX500, it is interesting to see the amount of these bike that have been turned in to cool looking Cafe bikes!

Each bike goes through rigorous inspection, cleaning and examination before we feel comfortable considering it a part of our inventory and available for sale. Once we are through with our thorough inspections and cleanings and the bike has been approved for sale, we photograph it from all angles. The picture views assure to our clients that the bike is in good condition and there are no flaws to hide, which is important to both us and to our online buyers.
